A very comfortable type brew-pub / pizza joint. Small and rustically adorned but with great pizzas and a fantastic collection of award winning brews. Some of Pizza Port's brews (as well as their Lost Abbey belgiums) are beginning to make it into the retail markets in bottles but for the most part, if you want any of the more complex brews, you have to get them here.
The weekend I visited was during their annual Strong Ale Festival which was held in the outdoor "Garden" area. They were able to keep the festial seperate from the rest of the operation and everything ran amazingly smooth. (592 characters)

Great rotating beer selection and amazing pizza. What more can you ask for? Oh that's right, not having 100 kids running around while you're trying to enjoy them. I swear every time we visit there is a little league or soccer team celebrating something. We still put up with it because the food and beer are top notch. And the bottle shop/tap trailer next door is really nice as well. You can drink bottles on premise or to go which is so nice. (444 characters)

We stopped for a late lunch after hitting the beach with friends. Cool, California beach crowd with both locals and tourist. Beer hit the mark and food was as expected for a pizza joint.

Ordering food was no problem, but getting beer was slow at times. Server was knowledgeable on Wee Heavy's which you don't normally find.

Parking in the back. Worth a stop, but if crowded, it's probably not the best place. (411 characters)

Food & Beer was great. It's a beach joint and self-service so it was a pain to get beer refills when lines got longer, but a great spot overall. (145 characters)

There is no service. I don't get the novelty here - you wait in line to order food, you wait in line to order beer,you have to hustle for a table. Food is mediocre. Beer is solid. But why bother?? Blech. (208 characters)
